Pleasance Cabaret Bar, Edinburgh



"Tom Kitching and Gren Bartley are one of the brightest young acts on the folk scene today. Playing music from a remarkably broad range of sources, their new album 'Boundary' crosses genres with a healthy disdain for arbitrary pigeon-holing of styles and traditions. Some songs just need to be sung.

'The instruments spark, with the combination of the bright fiddle and the acclaimed finger picking style of Bartley giving a lovely flow to the tunes' - Maverick Magazine

Having met at Loughborough University, through presenting a folk show on the campus radio, the duo grew out of a wish to perform the music they loved. Over time, Gren developed a distinctive passionate song writing style that manages to push boundaries, whilst staying respectful to the traditions."

'Bartley proves to be an accomplished songwriter, with a restful voice that lulls its way into the mind and heart.' -Allmusic.com
Tom's fiddle style has grown with the material, switching between a delicate, subtle accompaniment to a fiery torrent of sound.

'Tom must be one of the best young fiddlers in England, with a fluid style equally at ease with the English, American and Irish traditions' - Living Tradition

The range of material is the key to a performance from Tom and Gren. Equally at home with original songs, or old English dance tunes, it's more than just something for everyone. Rather, they've developed a voice that suits the material and gives it a fresh edge. Combine this with the rapport they've developed, both with the music and for each other, and you've got a lively, engaging duo who are capable of performing to any audience

Go and see these two if you get the chance; musicianship of the highest order, and a fine stage presence as well.
